From an episode to the next, we always wonder in which context the puppets in Puppet Master will be placed. In this point in time, Puppet Master 4 and 5, produced at the same time, feature the characters more than ever. The human characters are younger that the ones in the previous three episodes. The special effects are still weak but more audacious and more frequent.
Lasers and electrical fields give this sequel a more futuristic style. It is a drastic change that shouldn’t be kept in future episodes. With such a limited budget, it is not recommended to adventure onto such grounds. It is a common error in this series but it still remains interesting, simple and addictive. Even though the franchise shows stubbornness by constantly adding new puppets with each episode, the original ones are the most stylized.
